What you need to know about this course

A new context for leadership is crucial in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) business environment. This is especially true in these unprecedented times of pandemic and the new reality that we are experiencing.

Mental resilience gives you the vital resources to deal with times of steady and rapid change. It is the union of persistence, adaptability, and transformability that helps you develop even when faced with change wrought with uncertainty and the unknown.

Mastering mental resilience through the use of evidence-based techniques and strategies transforms stressors from threats into challenges that can be overcome. This hardwires your brain to identify viable options for action and keeps you focused on achieving your goals and more.

When you have mental resilience, you not only accept surprises and complexity, but also turn crises or problems into new opportunities.

By the end of the Leadership Mental Resilience workshop you will be equipped with evidence-based strategies and techniques drawn on the most impactful elements of Positive Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Behavior Techniques (CBT) and Emotional Intelligence, enabling you to optimize both, your own and your team performance, respond better and even thrive during VUCA time.
